Fat transfer or fat grafting can be used to correct issues like deep furrows and wrinkles on the face or other areas of the body. This procedure re-contours those areas. Both the areas from which fat is removed and transferred to, are anesthetized. Fat is taken from places like the lower stomach, thigh or buttocks using a tube and syringe. The fat cells are prepared and then carefully re-injected into the treatment sites. The process is repeated until the desired amount of fat has been transferred, and problems corrected. More than one session is typically required, as some transferred cells are dissolve away over time. There can be minimal pain afterwards, and strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks.
